    Stephanie Kalous

    Executive Director/ Primrose Consultant

    Hi there! I have worked for Shawn and Linda for 6 years serving as a Director at both Primrose School of Castle Rock and Primrose School of Lone Tree. I have been in the Early Childhood Field for 15 years and have loved every minute of it. Before becoming a Director, I was a Preschool Teacher. Once I became Director Qualified, I found that my real passion was being in a leadership role. My husband, Trevor, and I grew up in rural Northeast Colorado where farming and ranching played a big part of their lives. In my spare time I enjoy doing anything that deals with agriculture, planting flowers, gardening, and spending time with my family. I am now consulting for Primrose School of Lone Tree and Primrose School of Castle Rock.

    Hi there! I have worked for Shawn and Linda for 4 years as an Assistant teacher, Lead teacher, and now the Director of Primrose School of Lone Tree. I found my passion for Early Childhood when I started as a teacher and took the opportunity to get Director qualified. I was born and raised in Highlands Ranch, CO and went to school in Wyoming. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, watching sports, attending concerts (huge Dead Head fan), spending time with family and friends, and checking out local restaurants and breweries.
